Think Pink! -- Revlon 260 Girly Nail Lacquer

Let's kick off the Think Pink! series with one of the latest arrival to Revlon's nail lacquer range -- 260 Girly!

Since I've seen a Whimsical swatched on Sleep and Water, I've been meaning to check it out instore. I've always thought that they were only available online, but my previous trip to Priceline proved me wrong :P

I saw both Whimsical and Girly, along with some other similar cream and glitter-based lacquers. Too bad for me, the prices were way out of my budget so I've decided to hold back on these until there was a good sale. 


I made sure to show them to my sister though.... and next thing you know, a few days after, she carries these home in her hand and yells, "I'VE GOT NEW NAIL POLISHES! WOO!”. Enabling her was certainly not a part of my plan, but it's a good thing for me... hoho.


Girly contains medium-sized blue, fuchsia and light-gold hex glitters along with tiny burnt-orange and purple hexes in a sheer, warm-toned light pink base. I know the colour combination doesn't sound too great, but it somehow works together fine. I don't mind it on my nails!


The pink base isn't extremely sheer, so 3 coats was enough to build up the opacity. The polish contains ALOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT of glitter pieces, which may make you happy if you're after a lacquer that's packed of glitters. Adding to that, they are holy golly reflective too! @_@


Sadly, its not my cuppa tea, this one! Although the formula applies flawlessly, I prefer something with less glitters for easier jelly sandwich manicures. I still can definitely use this for jelly sandwiches in combine with a sheer pink lacquer, but the extra effort.... I'll pass for now!

  2. I actually prefer Whimiscal over this shade but nevertheless, it's a beautiful 'girly' shade haha :)

  4. The combination is nice, but yeah it looks a tad off. Perhaps layering it over a pink base would help? I really love jelly glitter polishes though, they look so cute!

  7. I think just use a light pink that's not to light or dark then paint this over the top.
